    And sadly, that's only the LEOs who died. Lets not forget the 343 Firefighters and the thousands of civilian victims who also perished on that day. And all the rescuers who have died or have gotten sick since from cancers, sicknesses, suicides, drug and alcohol abuses due to their experiences there.

    And lets not forget all the families who lost loved ones.

    The 343 are remembered by the Thin Red Line. The first patch is FDNY...

    10-4 Russ. I see the FDNY patch. I still can't grasp how any agency can loose 343 members in one incident.

    I read this online:

    I am going to a local memorial service where a piece of the Towers will be dedicated. There will be retired NYPD and FDNY in attendance. They are my neighbors. They lost countless friends that day. It's going to be emotional.

    Very nice and appropriate post and point, but another thing that strikes me about these men and women of the LEO and FF communities:

    So, of the 2606 deaths at WTC attack (minus those on the hi-jacked planes), 430 were LEOs, FFs, and Paramedics, leaving the civilian death toll at: 2176.

    Only 110 civilians died who were from below the impact zones. I'd say those 430 rescue workers, whether firefighters, law enforcement, or emergency medical personnel not only gave it their all, but they did a damn fine job of their work that day as well. There are probably 12,000 to 15,000 people, maybe more, who are alive today because of the sacrifice of these rescuers.

    That's 28 to 35 people saved for every rescuer lost. I hate to look at things such as this with something so cold as numbers, but it's a good illustration of the dedication, heroism, professionalism, and bravery of those rescuers in an unprecedented situation.

    God bless them, and their families.

    May all who have died in this rest in peace. May all who are presently suffering from this know His peace.


    May all be honoured for their sacrifice.

    Russ,
    From someone who was there that day, and walked amid the dust that was those buildings, and those souls, Thank You.

    We owe it to everyone who died that day to NEVER FORGET.
